"My boyfriend started licking my eyeballs years ago and I just loved it. I'm not with him anymore, but I still like to ask guys to lick my eyeballs," a 29-year-old grad student from the U.S. Virgin Islands told The Huffington Post. "I just love it because it turns me on, like sucking on my toes. It makes me feel all tingly."

Because as you might have guessed, tonguing someone's eye can have some medical repercussions.

According to a translation by a website called Japan Crush, the eyeball-licking fad is causing waves of conjunctivitis, or pinkeye, which is caused by foreign bacteria entering the mucus membranes of the eye. Students have also reported an uptick in styes. And if someone has a cold sore, he or she could spread herpes to the lickee.

One possible explanation for the new fad is this year-old music video from the Japanese band Born, which features some prime eyeball licking at 3:35.
